Thought for today:
‘There is a distinct difference between having an open mind and having a hole in your head from which your brain leaks out.’
— James Randi

I read an editorial today about James Randi.
You might not know his name, he was a great debunker of myths.
He talked about how we seem to be losing our critical thinking abilities.
There is of course a place in our lives for belief, a little mystery, not knowing.
James Randi took on the people who used this for their own financial gain, taking advantage of the gullible.
He was one of my personal heroes, a very entertaining man.
He undermined Uri Geller on the Johnny Carson show to great effect.
He died last week, aged 92.
